Address: 2 Sylvester Path, Hackney, London, E8 1EN
Telephone: 0844 264 1444
Pleasant and clean gastro-pub (and hotel) in the centre of Hackney, close to the Hackney Empire and Hackney Central Station.
Although the official address is Sylvester Path, I expect most people enter the Old Ship along a narrow corridor that fronts on to Mare Street. The pub area is large with a high ceiling – giving an open and airy feel. One side of the pub is set aside for diners, the other for drinkers – with some comfortable sofas.
On the bar there are 4 hand pumps. The selection on my last visit was Doom Bar, Ruddles Best and TT Landlord. The beer I tried tasted OK but not the best.
Food is available from an extensive menu. I’ve not eaten here, but the reviews are good.
Free wifi is available.
